Galapaghost: I Never Arrived

There’s a certain vibe to this record I really like, it opens slowly in your brain but it is layered with great instrumental moments, wonderful harmony vocals and certainly solid lyrics really about something. With Casey Chandler on acoustic guitar, singing, playing piano, bass, synths, figuring in drum programming; part-time band member Federico Puttilli adding electric and acoustic guitars, ukulele, and egg shaker and drummer Alessio Sanfilippo, Galapaghost really delivers here.

The Witches, Salem 1692 by Stacy Schiff

The Witches, Salem 1692 by Stacy Schiff

It is a thick historic read that Stacy Schiff flies us through in her The Witches, Salem 1692. If you think you know all about this period of history, have the skinny on the rumors and historic accounting, know full well what happened to a bunch of women (and men) way back in the early days of this country, think again.

Talking tea (and trees) with Mélisse L’abeille of Steep For The Trees, Inc.

Talking tea (and trees) with Mélisse L’abeille of Steep For The Trees, Inc.

While we big city hipsters walk around with our noses buried in our cell phones as much as we do searching for our next dose of Starbucks, imbibing tea seems to be more an ancient and relaxing (even medicinal approach) to destressing from life and enjoying a beverage. I had the good fortune of talking to Mélisse L’abeille co-owner/creator with her partner John of the Steep For The Trees, Inc. brand of tea. Founded just last year the couple was determined to own/establish their own business while they were still in their 20’s, as much wanting to give back to a foundation that planted trees. Finding the “Trees That Feed Foundation” to contribute proceeds to, John and Mélisse offer their wonderful teas as much as make contributions to help end hunger in the Caribbean and abroad with their tea sales.

The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (Revised)

The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (Revised)

Not so much modernized (though there were a few moments of that to be sure) as “abridged” and “revised,” in wholly wild ways The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (Revised) presented on the outdoor stage of The Shakespeare Theatre Of New Jersey, is a spectacular hour and half hour romp ‘round The Bard. Starring Jon Barker, Connor Carew and Patrick Toon we have here a trio equal to the task of making and having fun with this heady well-revered cannon. Truncating running times, running riot round logic (and the two book tower set), making merry by rapping, enlisting audience participation, doing a mock of the terribly tagic Titus Andronicus, via Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” Barker, Carew and Toon keep things ever moving, to an often exhausting revelry, in Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Weinfield’s very clever play.

THE SEX FILES: And The Winners Are…

Ok, it ain’t the upcoming VMA’s or the Emmys. And yes, the red carpet was decidedly smaller (had they one at all) and the stars’ entrances not televised. And the nominees and winners here were not household names like a George Clooney or a Lady Gaga (though Gaga would have fit well amongst this crowd) but the first annual Fetish Con Awards held during the recent Fetish Con in FL, need be celebrated, I feel.
